The City of Victoria’s annual firework show returns to the community center

Fireworks and music are around the corner

Ab 4th

VICTORIA, Texas – Carolina: We are now joined by Kimberly Zygmant/Assistant Director from the Parks and Recreation Department with the City of Victoria.  She is the assistant director and is here to talk about the upcoming 4th of July fireworks show.  So Kimberly tell us all about this event. We are so happy for the return of in-person events as I am sure the city is.

Kimberly: Yes, we are so excited to be able to host this again this year.  It’s the 4th of July annual celebration.  Gates open at 5 pm. Bag of Donuts is a really fun band from New Orleans.  They will be on our stage at 6:15 pm and then the Miller Lite Blastoff Show will start at 9:30 pm.  This will all be at the Community Center Grounds on 2905 East North Street.

Carolina: And how early can you show up for people who want to make sure and they get their preferred spots.

Kimberly: So the gates open at 5 pm but The Big Texas Fun Carnival will be back for that week.  So those rides will be available all day long.

Carolina: Wow, that sounds like a lot of fun, and tell me more about Bag of Donuts.

Kimberly:  So they are a super fun cover band from New Orleans.  We are really excited to have them.  They have toured all over the United States.  So we are really excited.  Glazer’s Beer and Beverage one of our real big sponsors, they were able to find them and bring them in for this event.

Carolina: And how will this event be different from celebrations we have had in the past for the 4th of July?

Kimberly: So I think Bag of Donuts will be that really fun addition to it.  I know there are usually bands in the past, but they are just such a big act with fun high energy.  And then having that carnival supplement it there will be lots of fun things to do the whole day.  And then just the traditional wonderful fireworks show.

Carolina: And a way to enjoy the fireworks if you don’t live in the county because you cannot do fireworks on your own within the city limits.

Kimberly:  Correct. Carolina: Wow, so what an extraordinary event, and who did you say are the sponsors.

Kimberly: Glazer’s Beer and Beverage and Miller Lite.

Carolina: Wow, so that’s amazing that they are willing to sponsor and help support this amazing event.  And it’s July 4th.

Kimberly: Yes.  Carolina: Gates open at 5 pm.  So you can get there early.  And Bag of Donuts will go on at?

Kimberly: 6:15 p.m.

Carolina: 6:15 p.m. so you have an hour to socialize and you can show up even earlier to get on one of those carnival rides.  And if you would like to share your news on Sunrise feel free to send me an email at castrain@victoriatelevision.com.  Thank you so much Kimberly for joining us this morning.
